Kailie PillardCommunications Manager
Kailie Pillard was born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI, where she stayed to earn her B.A. in Community Leadership and Communications from Aquinas College. In 2017, Kailie began her journey with the Doug & Maria DeVos Foundation’s Congregational Initiatives after working in a variety of schools, churches, and local nonprofit organizations and developing a passion for connecting community members and resources. Over the years, she has supported the Congregational Initiative’s administrative tasks, programming, and now, the day-to-day communications of the Urban Church Leadership Center (UCLC). Kailie is dedicated to supporting and uplifting church leaders as they serve families and community members. She feels a call to ensuring that their stories are told so that greater unity can be achieved among current and future ministry leaders.
